SBC research aims to explore and develop scenaria of our future built environment and intelligent lighting, where Ambient Intelligence applications are aimed at improving quality of living, addressing social issues, and improving usage of resources.

Intelligent Driving (ID)

Chair: Dr. Jacques Terken, TU/e, Netherlands
ID explores the applications of Ambient Intelligence in the car and in the road infrastructure to improve the efficiency and safety of road networks, to improve people's driving experience.

Data Science (DS)

Chair: Prof. dr. Emile Aarts, TU/e, Netherlands
DS combines contributions from computer science, mathematics, social sciences, design, to exploit the vast amount of data that can be collected about individuals, groups, and their activities.

Smart Healthcare and Healing Environments (SHHE)

Chair: Prof. dr. Evert van Loenen, Philips Research, Netherlands
SHHE explores applications of Ambient Intelligence to improve the quality of cure and care, including (but not limited to) outcomes, patient safety, patient and staff satisfaction, workflow and efficiency, flexibility and adaptability, remote diagnostics and way-finding.

Ambient Persuasion (AP)

Chair: Prof. dr. Panos Markopoulos, TU/e, Netherlands
AP explores Ambient Intelligence systems and services designed to influence attitudes or behaviors of its users for enhancing their health and wellbeing.

New and Emerging Themes (NET)

Chair: Prof. dr. Gregory O'Hare, UCD, Ireland
NET provides an opportunity for contributions on new and emerging themes that fall outside of the scope of the above mentioned themes.

For all themes authors of full papers, short papers, workshops, posters and demos are welcome to submit using the conference review system.

Submission guidelines

Papers must be anonymized to facilitate blind review. Authors are encouraged to take care throughout the entire document to minimize references that may reveal the identity of the authors and their institutions. Relevant references to an author's previous research should not be suppressed but instead referenced in an neutral way.

Paper submissions should respect the maximum number of pages for each category (including figures and references). Papers must be submitted in PDF format. Accepted submissions for the full and short paper category will appear in the Conference Proceedings. Confidentiality of submissions is maintained during the review process. After acceptance, a final, revised camera-ready version of the paper will be required in electronic form to go in the proceedings. Final camera-ready versions of accepted papers must be accompanied by a signed copyright form.

Paper submissions for all categories should follow the Springer guidelines for Proceedings and will be published in the Conference Proceedings.

Submission instructions are available for the full papers, short papers, workshop proposals and posters & demos categories.
